I assume an IR LED mounredbin front of the guide blade is an issue because the ARC PRO reads both blade and LED. If it reads in sequence then turning the power base around will solve it surely?

If your APB is updated to firmware 1.9 then it ignores the blade sensor and lap counting reliability increases - maybe the ARC PRO firmware needs the same treatment?

As the blade sensor "gates" the IR sensor then could the blade "gate" be permanently opened by bypassing the blade sensor?

Ferrite men filter electrical noise. The 103 cap is a crude high level filter and the binocular core also removes spikes.

Between the chip and the motor they remove motor noise. Between the guide and chip they remove noise from the track (spikes caused by braids arcing, cars crashing etc.)

The ferrite man can be anywhere along the wiring and it doesnt matter which side of the binocular core you choose to site the orange cap.

The standard chip will handle more powerful motors but it is current that kills chips. A motor draws most current from a standing start - so if you try to push through a crash or run magnets on a powerful motor it causes maximum current draw and fries the chip. A slot.it orange can or Flat6 is fine IF you avoid near-stall-full-throttle situations.

An upgraded chip will take anything a Flat6 with traction magnets can throw at it.
